Another anti-Semitic incident in Sherman Oaks


A reportedly anti-Semitic letter documenting the origin of the word Jew was received today by the Valley Cities Jewish Community Center in Sherman Oaks—as if that JCC didn’t have a big enough problem. It’s being investigated as a “hate incident” because no threat was made, authorities said.

Two weeks ago, employees of Councilman Jack Weiss arrived at his Sherman Oaks district office to find three swastikas and an incoherent rant—containing such pleasantry as “We’ll have a homoerotic cop feeling up your Jewish ass in no time!!!”— epoxied to their office doors. Adonis Irwin was arrested and has been charged with three felony counts.
